Lightning strikes twice! Arsenal’s ‘leaked third kit for the coming season with a striking zigzag design inspired by the 1990s’ – with blast from the past that echoes the days of Ian Wright and Dennis Bergkamp
- Arsenal’s proposed third shirt for next season appears to have been leaked online
- The eye-catching zigzag design has been unveiled by website FootyHeadlines
- The new top is inspired by the ‘Blue Lightning’ pattern from the 90s
Arsenal’s fortunes on the field may continue to get worse, but the club will again keep their hands off them thanks to another standout shirt design.
The latest rumor concept, revealed by FootyHeadlines, has unveiled a whimsical lightning inspiration for the third jersey to be worn next season.
Not dazzling their current players, the Arsenal fan base can be grateful for the welcome and sensational blast from the past.
Arsenal’s leaked third season kit will boast a 90s-inspired lightning pattern
The top, designed by Adidas, is predominantly blue and is stylishly rounded off with a shade of turquoise and red-white logos.
It echoes the memorable ‘Blue Lightning’ away kits that Nike released between 1994 and 1996 and worn by a slew of tough big names.
However, the zigzag pattern can change and the collar design, as shown in the concepts, can also look different on the final product.
The club famously wore jerseys with the zigzag design (above) between 1994 and 1996
However, those keen to grab the leaked jersey will have to wait until August 2021, with the official launch expected to take place then.
As a result, it can still take several months for any sneak previews of the actual top to be shown to potential buyers.
Dennis Bergkamp and Ian Wright are just two Arsenal players who took advantage of the radical design that inspired the rumor comic in the 1990s.
But the first campaign to roll out the ‘Blue Lightning’ pattern was arguably Arsenal’s most frustrating in a decade.

The club finished 12th in the top flight in 1994-95 and failed to win a single trophy.
George Graham, the long-serving and highly successful man at the helm, was fired – and his assistant Stewart Houston went through a rough time after replacing him.
The following campaign was only a marginal improvement. Again Arsenal failed to compete for the title and went without silverware.
